Left for Dead

Body aching, covered in dirt, like I had died, was buried, dug back up then ran over me with a truck.

Trying to get my bearings I look across the Idaho landscape, not a soul in site with the exception of a tractor pulling a trailer in the distance.

A brisk breeze loosens some of the dirt packed in my oversized ears.

What the hell happened? Reminiscent of what Mum used to say, “your ears are so dirty you could grow potatoes in there”, Surprised none got in my mouth.

Getting to my feet I brush my white gloves off put on my black hat, and look down to see my still surprisingly clean starched blue trousers are none the worse for wear. I start making my way down the wheel worn grass trail.

As the sun begins to set, the tractor draws closer with flood lights on. I wave to them I think they see me.

Thank God, for help.

Every step is agony

I try to scream out but I can’t seem to open my mouth.

They see me!

It’s a farmer and his son. The boy comes toward me. Closer and closer I want to scream out but I can’t !

The father yells to the boy, “who is it son?”,,

Dad its,…. its …

Mr. Potato head?

Caine Reincarnated:100 Word Fiction

 

Caine Reincarnated 

Waiting outside the temple in the snow, he alone was invited in because of his humility. 

Who better a teacher on how to listen, than a blind master?
Upon snatching the pebble and enduring the pain of the burning cauldron, it was time to leave.

Like a locust drifting on the wind, the Shaolin landed In a foreign land. 

Years past, mortal death arrived,he awoke feeling the tightening of his hamstrings, mandibles at the ready, as compound vision eliminated the need of eye movement. 

Grasshopper heard Masters Po’s voice, “You must be the new student. come to me”!

For those not familiar, Kung Fu was an 1970’s American action-adventure martial arts western drama television series starring David Carradine. Controversially it is said that an original co-creator for the show was Bruce Lee. Lee was to star in the show but was thought to have been overlooked for looking “too Asian ” for at the time “no diversity” television industry. In this link the beloved Master Po gives Caine his “pet name” Grasshopper. Grasshopper Peace My Friends.

Glowing Taxi tail lights fade into the night. The hybrid vehicle’s virtually silent on freshly Long Island fallen snow. This is a long way from Afghanistan. 24 hours earlier I have been in the sweltering desert heat. Who’s car is that in the driveway. I know I have the right address. Fumbling with the keys, I hear the dog barking through the door. A light comes on. An unfamiliar male voice is muffled. As I reach for the door handle, I hear the door unlocked from the inside. The door is chained. Then I see her eyes. I guess I should have called.

Let Your Heart Shine

Our hearts, just as the clouds, are shaped by warmth, shadow and darkness.

A passionate sun, blinding our inner soul with infatuation

Ill-prepared for the coming storm that if endured, tempers ones spirit with wisdom, understanding, and compassion producing a burning ember that is Love.
